NEW COACH SECURED.
The University Athletic Advisory
Committee Fortunate in Secur--
lug the Services of Willis
S. Klenholz for Coach.
r' . o i i 'a (-
The efforts of the athletic advis
ory committee to secure a good
coach for next season's team has
met with splendid success. They
have signed for this position Mr.
Willis S. Kienholz, whose record as
a coach is a brilliant one. . A Den
ver paper said recently of him
"W estern colleges win De unques
tionably the losers if they permi
Kienholz to go . east." Carolina
secured him as a matter of fact, in
spite of the efforts of several large
western col leges. 3 . : t !
Mr. Kienholz is a graduate o
the University of Minnesota, 1901,
where he played four years on the
Varsity football team, at tha posi
tions ot hair and quarter, tiis rec
ord is quite brilliant, being chosen
quarter on the All Western Eleven
in 1901. Besides football, Mr.
Kienholz is a track and basket ball
man, beimr a member of the Minne
sota basket ball team which defeat
ed Yale, Columbia, and Harvard
In 1902 he assisted Coach -Williams
at Minnesota in the development of
that great team. In 1903 he coach
ed Lombard : College, where his
team won the championship of the
Illinois colleges. : .. :
In 1904. Mr. Kienholz came to
the A. & M. College in this state1,
where he revolutionized athletic,
being largely instrumental in plac
ing that institution where it stands
ttoday in football.; As a coach, all
v the men who have ever played
under him are very enthusiastic and
devoted to him. That he will make
Carolina a great coach is the pre
diction of those who know his abil
ity and record. !
The Prizes Awarded.-
Messrs. Editors: 5 1
No' doubt the members of our
faithful 1905 scrub team have been
wondering why something has not
v been said about the suit of, clothes
' which Mr. Pearson, the clever tai
Inr from Durham, offered to give to
the best scrub man, and the three
sweaters which. Mr. Schillipsie.
Jno. R. Lemmert's representative,
offered for the 3 scrubs makitgthe
mbst improvement during the fall.
The delay, however, is due to the
v. fact ' that I did not know what
course to pursue, since Coach War
ner left' without expressing his opin-
ion, about the -matter. And, as he
and myself were the ones chosen to
- decide to whom these articles were
to be given,. I felt rather a delicacy
in awarding them to the men vvith-
' oat someone to help me. But since
v it seems agreeable that I should do
so, I shall award them impartially
and with pleasure to the men whom
n J think.most deserve them. -'
The suit of clothes was to be
given to the best man on the scrub
team. This man, I think, is Jim
Davis. Davis came out at the be
ginning of the foot ball season an
entirely green man as far as his
knowledge of the game was con
cerned, but by the end of the season
he had developed into a valuable
man. Davis is Varsity material and
if ke is in college next year he will
be hard to keep off the Carolina
There were four other men on the
scrub squad who made about an
equal amount or improvement
Those men were: John Hall Man
ning, Dickson, Rogers, and D'Alem
berte. However, since there are
only three sweaters I shall have to
remember the fact that D'Alem
berte had the advantage of several
trips, while neither of the other
three did. So I take great pleasure
in awarding the sweaters to Man
ning, Dickson and Rogers.

One of the familiar characters of

begin conversing yith him on al
most any subject but in a few min

of it, he will have shifted the topic

A group of upperclassmen, more
for pastime than for anything else
engaged him in conversation the
other day. They were students of
philosophy, they had dipped deep
into the insoluble questions of life,
and turned to the colored leader of
his people's spiritual life, to com
pare with theirs his point of view.
To the Observer it was an intenselv
interesting conversation. The stu
dents, while careful not to say any
thing in a light or irreverent way
which was calculated in any way to
undermine his ssimple faith, plied
the old man from time to time with
questions which have baffled the in'
tellects of the philosophers and dij
vided the theologians since time be-
gan. With ease and fluency of
speech the preacher held his own in
In some respects his "point of view
was new. In' the majority of cases,
however, he relied for his proof on
Scriptural quotations. Did not
such and such a verse declare so

his own eyes? preached from it
perhaps, in his own pulpit? Occa

truth which, in its universality,
seemed to sweep beyond all racial

his voice was that of one speaking
with authority. He was no longer
one of a despised and alien race, con
versing with superiors, but a hu
man being, on a fooling of absolute
equality with every other. And
then the light in his eyes vanished
as suddenly as it had appeared, his
voice fell to its habitual pitch. He
was once more an inferior, a hewer

Ever since 'way back in the long,
long ago when the staid old fathers
of the University met 'neath' the
spreading branches of the historic
poplar and made their decision as to
the location of this institution,
Chapel Hill has been regarded as" a
village. The primeval forest fell
beneath the vigorous blows of the
pioneer woodsman. A solitary buil
ding arose on what is known as the
Univeisity campus, bearing witness
that culture was not yet dead,' pro
phesying eloquently of the future.
With the erection of the building
came as its accompaniment, a store,
which round grew up a ragged
settlement. A forest road was laid
off and called a street, and the Vil-
age of Chapel Hill was born. This,
mark vou. was in the long ago, be
fore even Dromgoole' waged his
mystic fight, ere Patton taught in
penmanship or Miles dreamed of a
singing school. - '
During the years that have rolled
on the campus buildings have
doubled, trebled, quadrupled in
creased finally eighteenfold. But
the village, people said, was stand
ing still. Fifty years built a Chi
cago, why is a hundred wasted on
Chapel Hill? In truth, its growth
was nothing phenomenal. A new
dwelling erected in '23, another in
'51. Small wonder that the impet
uous, the precipitate, the impatient,
But through all the years the vil
lage ' held its peace and grew.
There is nothing that does "not fall
before unceasing progress. The
voice or the Dintenng critic is
hushed, his withering glances fall
before the predestined death of the
village, the impending birth of the
city. Who is there in recent years
who has not marked the transition?
What lover of the old order but
blanched at the appearance of the
automobile, and shivered at the
blast from the chaffeur's horn?
Who has failed to hear the sound of
the hammer and the saw, as they
are transforming the Durham road
into Faculty avenue? What pro-
' yt 4 t ' -
gressive Chapel riuiian does not
feel a thrill of pride at the fires and
the firecracker explosions which fol
low each other with a rapidity
which places the town in a class
with New York City, as an inex
haustible source of excitement?
Does it not produce each year a
